Global Sharing Week 2018

June 3rd-10th

 

Celebrate the social impact of sharing

The world is being transformed by sharing. And there's no better time to
discover just how much of impact it has than Global Sharing Week. Add
your sharing event to the GSW map and help us shift the focus away from
what’s wrong with the world, to what’s right with it. No event is too small,
no act of sharing too insignificant. From individuals to corporations, our
annual mass engagement campaign is the largest because it celebrates all
the wonders of the sharing economy.
 
This year's theme? Social impact.
The sharing economy is the Future of Life. As it transforms the very fabric of
society, this year we're highlighting all the good in the world brought about by
sharing. Taking place between June 3rd to 10th  Global Sharing Week events
happen all over the world. You can find and register events on our global map.
 
Where You Come In
Did you know there are over £3.5 trillion worth of idle human and physical
resources in the world – and that unlocking access to these could solve major
global challenges? So get your Global Sharing Week event on the map to give the
sharing economy movement that extra bit of momentum. 
Examples of events can include: clothes swaps, food shares, disco soups, picnics,
skills swaps, grub clubs, give and get markets, potluck dinners, bake shares, co-
working hackathons, maker fairs, reuse / recycling events – you name it. Check
our 7 awesome ways to get involved.
 
Who can join?
Anyone can register an event. As long as it unlocks access to skills, knowledge,
time, goods, food etc, it’s definitely Global Sharing Week material. So register
your event, and join the ranks of sharers putting the Sharing Economy on the
map.
 
Last year, Global Sharing Week 2017 saw over 354 events take place in 113
cities, across 34 countries on every continent! It was a tremendous success and
we reached over 5.5 million Twitter accounts. We’re confident, this year we can
do better.

There are 101 registered events.

    London Bridge Station in London, United Kingdom

    Summer Walking Book Club Day 1 (London Bridge to Hyde Park)

    Dear Members
    We would like to introduce a new walking style and new edge to our walking group.
    I will organise walking book club days once every two months.
    We will start reading a book and discuss them during our walk. We will sit under a tree and have a little picnic and rest.
    You can choose a book of your choice and discuss it during your walk. At the end the walk we have a circle and discuss our experience & views about the books and walk.
    For this walk I will charge members £2.
    As we all know that reading is beneficial for our wellbeing and widen our horizon.
    This time with the money we get I buy a book to a member who comes and attends the walk with the budget of this particular walk. Rest of the money will be donated to a nominated charity.
    I am excited to organise something like that which benefit all of us. I will be reading "Love and Will" (1969) (Rollo May)
    There is no limit of walking numbers for walking club during Summer. More is better
    Please bring some snacks and water for the little picnic.

    Thank you
    Best Regards
    Engin

    Rollins Congressional Club in Rockville, MD

    Free Stress Management Sessions with Heartfulness Meditation and Relaxation

    Heartfulness is a way of living. A simple and practical way to experience the heart’s unlimited resources.

    The Heartfulness meditation technique is a gradual and comprehensive process, starting with the relaxation of the body. The initial Alternative health practice induces the release of the tensions stored in the body and mind in a natural and progressive step-by-step approach.

    Regular classes further improve our ability to control our own inner balance. It has been said that meditation can reduce stress, lead to a better quality of sleep, stimulate the immune system, promote better concentration and improve your quality of life.

    Please feel free to bring chairs or floor chairs or meditation seats if you like. Please join us at 7.15 am every Sunday at RCC (Rollins Congressional Club) 1621, Martha Terrace. Rockville, MD 20852

    For more details send email to [masked]

    This event is and will always be FREE. :D

    * Even if attendees aren't signed on meetup, we have a good group who meets every Sunday without fail unless notified otherwise.

    Outdoor Tabata Workout

    8:30am start time!

    Join us for an outdoor tabata-style workout in the grassy area near the Chapel Hill Community Center / Bolin Creek Trail at 8:30am. Bring a yoga mat for this one! And water!

    Questions? Just ask!

    About this workout: This workout will be comprised of a number of 4minute tabatas (20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest, repeat 8 times). You will be expected to work at 110% effort during the 20seconds doing things like push-ups, burpees, jumping jacks, squat jumps, high knees, ab work, you name it! Definitely bring a towel or a mat to put between you and the ground, and plenty of water. This workout is suited for all ability levels because it is entirely time-based/individual. That doesn't mean it will be easy - but it will be at just the right level for you!

    Please always bring: Plenty of water to drink, a yoga mat or towel to use in the wet/cold grass, sunscreen, clothes you don't mind getting a little muddy. Bonus points for bringing a friend and a kick-ass enthusiastic attitude!
